Just like a negative social determinant of health, the stressors in the ecomap influence and produce other stressors. I think the ecomap illustrates a clear path towards reducing the stressors in the family and identifying the source of the problems. These tools helped me learn the importance of a comprehensive family assessment. It would have been difficult to link the relationship between the stressors and family patterns had it not been for the genogram and the ecomap. The CFAM had a similar impact on my perspective and

The overall wellbeing of a person depends upon the interplay and combination of a number of factors existing in biological makeup of the person and in the society such as availability, accessibility, approachability and affordability of health care services, culture of people, physical, social and economic environment, living and working conditions, social and community ties etc. These factors act as determinants of health and wellbeing of the people and are influenced by the choices made by the people.

Biomedical and social models are important to understand the cause of health issues around the world. Increasing rates of non-communicable diseases in contrast to communicable diseases mean that social models have become more relevant over the past 150 years. Smoking related diseases such as lung cancer and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are non-communicable and in developed nations the rates of this disease are increasing. Social models such as the biopsychosocial model and the Dahlgren and Whitehead model can help explain the increasing trend, but in different ways and this is what the essay will be exploring.
